    Pros

    Senior staff are very knowledgeable and happy to help
    Training for someone new to recruitment is very thorough
    Reputation with clients is good - there is a lot of in-bound business
    If you're ambitious and willing to graft then opportunities can open up for you
    Commission scheme is decent
    Pretty good with dealing with the work life balance for their staff

    Cons

    Same as with most Recruitment firms - if you're not willing to put it in then it won't work out.
    The company is based on individual expertise so there is little marketing support though this is being talked about.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in Marketing

    Pros

    25 year history
    Great customers
    Returning candidates

    Cons

    Consider:
    1) Recruiting more people to service international accounts
    2) More paid advertising needed

    No real cons - good environment to work in

    Pros

    I came into Howard Jackson straight from university is 2014. I went through 3 interviews, from informal to formal. Throughout the whole process i was kept tightly in the loop as to what their thoughts were regarding my potential fit to the company, but also extremely open and honest as to what to expect when working for them if i was successful which I'm glad to say I was.

    At Howard Jackson, staff have all the time in the world to invest into you and will assist you in every way they can in order to help you to develop to the best of your capability. I was told during an interviews that they would provide me with extensive training that would really push me to develop a whole new set of transferable skills. This is precisely what I got from day on of employment.

    Those who i work alongside are very supportive and will happily take the time to listen to questions I have. They have been great fun both in and outside of the workplace with a great atmosphere in the office.

    There are no barriers inside the company that stop you from talking with senior members of staff all the way to the top. The support given day to day is brilliant and I would happily recommend working for this company to anyone that is looking to develop their career in recruitment and to those who are looking for that first step into the working world.

    Cons

    Honestly, none.

    I am easily the most inexperienced member of the team in Manchester which in other companies would have me making coffees and tea all day. Not here, I have been encouraged into the deep in of the pool and feel that I am just as important within the team as anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on the way you are. Keep on listening to your team as you are and the rewards will speak for themselves.
